Dolly... I was just thinking about you a week or so ago and wondering if you were going to have a dog in your life again soon. I can't remember what got me thinking about it.

Congratulations to you and to Pip... who seems to have Niki's spirit in her eyes, not to mention a lot of resemblance in that mischievous face!

I see a lot of border collie... is she bigger or smaller? Papillion crossed my mind also.

What wonderful news!

Natalie

Arrow Re: Surpise meet my friend

Dolly!

Somehow I missed this till now! I'll have to go look at your picture(s)!

Yep; those young ones can be a real handful! Hehe!

My Camellia is, too, though for different reasons, though she's a few years older than Pippy; I'll be reporting again in Camellia's thread.

I am SO GLAD you were able to open your heart to another dog. I'm absolutely sure Niki would approve most heartily. She probably pushed you in that direction anyway, as Kwali and Kumbi pushed me to get Camellia!

Looking forward to any more reports you might have of your adventures with Pippy!

Love and hugs,

Default Re: Surpise meet my friend Pip

I was looking at some pictures of dogs, I think Pip is mostly border collie with brittany spaniel in her, especially with her freckled nose and her paws are freckled and somewhat a little larger than Niki's with just the 2 dew claws on her front paws.

With all the snow and ice storms her, when she went outside with me, we would fall through the ice snow mixture, so of course Pip got a cut/abrasion from it and naturally she had to keep licking at it making it worse, that was about a month and a half ago.

We had her nails trimmed last week and naturally the vet wanted to know why I had the coban wrap or vet wrap on her leg. They mentioned the cone of course but Pip's whole little head was in that, like it was too large, she looked like a priest or something like that, so off with the cone, bought some more gauze and use the Derma-gel I've had and re wraped, that wrap is really good, I had asked the vet what that was when they used it on Niki awhile back.

Hopefully by friday it will be cleared up, always something, she's not free to have the house by herself yet when I am gone, I hated buying a crate but thats for her protection, God forbid what could happen by the time I got home, she's a holy terror and I know she'd get into everything, I should have gotten another dog a few years ago and Niki would have trained her, so I have a toddler now for the time being. Of course she is right here laying in back of my chair, she doesn't know yet she needs to go under the desk with me rolling the chair back & forth.

She's a baby and has really helped with the loss of Niki, at times I still think Niki is laying here and there, it takes time. If it makes any sense I get sad when I go to the store where I bought her ground turkey & vegetables, I always think of Niki then, only a diabetic pet owner could understand that.

Dolly

Talking Re: Surpise meet my friend

So good to see you back, Dolly, and to read your update on Pip. (A glorious name for a dog, right, Pam?)

Hope her paw heals up quickly now! Paws can be so difficult! That rough snow and ice is horrid on a dog's paws! Especially if street crews put down sand - and SALT!

I got lucky this past winter - moved house (horrid, horrid job) - and on my new street (one I lived on for 27 years previously, but now farther up the street), the crews didn't bother ploughing, nor sanding nor salting! Thank goodness!

But I couldn't walk Camellia anyway, because my driveway and street are on a slippery slope! And ONE jerk from Camellia on the leash would have sent me flying. At the OLD place, the driveway and road were flat, and I could walk Kwali and Kumbi safely just by planting my feet carefully.

Here, we were snowbound for nearly five days, Camellia braving the outside stairs, which were icy - to do her stuff when needed. That was very good of her, as she was only recently house-trained - by me!

I know what you mean about missing our diabetic dogs. Because I now live in a different place, I have fewer constant reminders of Kwali and Kumbi - but that makes little difference, oddly enough, as I still miss both a lot, a lot, a lot! As I do my earlier animal companions.

Do keep us posted on Pip!

Love, hugs, licks and wags,

Good to hear an update on Pip, Dolly! Hoping that paw heals up soon.

I crated Ali early on as well when we were gone. She too was a holy terror with the desire to chew . Eventually we progressed to a restricted area with baby gate, then finally she was deemed trustworthy where the only thing she destroyed was her stuffed toys. I left the crate up for a while and she liked taking naps in it with the door propped open.

I understand the associations with Niki. They are such a part of us.

Good to hear from you!
Patty

Hey Dolly - I know what you mean about Nikki. I still do that with my beloved Buddy. I miss that guy so much. He tore a foot and a half hole in my wall-to-wall carpeting, but I hated that carpeting - so we HAD to get new! I loved him even more.

Holy Terror? Nobody told you to name her Pip! LOL Just kidding. But yes, Carol it is a glorious name!

Looks like she's keeping you busy! It's hard work, but I miss the puppyhood sometimes. I think it's the puppy breath! Do you have any more pictures of her? I'll look at your site. Glad the paw is healing!

Hey, I got my Newman so that Pip could train him - now he barks like a lunatic too!

How are you doing Dolly?
